When Emily Bing and Matt Martinez discovered the old red sled in Emily’s attic, they never dreamed it would hold amazing powers. But the magical Canadian Flyer has taken the pair back through time to the most exciting points in Canada’s history: to the far north to come face to face with pirates, to the Klondike to join the gold rush, and even so far back in time that they encounter dinosaurs. Now, the intrepid duo is ready for its next adventure ? an incredible voyage to the Viking settlement of Vinland. Beating Columbus by almost 500 years, Leif Eriksson was the first European to set foot on North American soil. Emily and Matt join Eriksson and his crew on their historic journey to Vinland in the year 1001. But although Eriksson successfully navigates across the sea to the New World, once on land he and his crew become hopelessly lost! Will Matt and Emily’s ingenious plan get them back on course? This riveting, fact-based adventure sweeps readers headlong into the past.

This series is similar to Magic Treehouse - which my son loved at this age. My daughter however seems much more taken with this set of books.
